Harrison Hot Springs, Accommodation
If you've never been to Harrison Hot Springs, you need to. Whether you're from across the prairies or Vancouver - especially Vancouver, it's worth it. You don't realize how close to home so much is available.
On any day the breeze off the lake will attract sail boarding, kite boadrers, marine craft of all types andsizes and just beach bumbs. Beach activities like swimming and sand castle building happens at schduled events. There's a helicoptor ride and a river cruise you can take when it's available during the season. Renting a suitable boat is also available for that fishing or just picnic up the lake. Harrison Lake is forty miles long so you won't need to worry about crowds for a while.
If hoteling is your style, Harrison Hotel will satisfy every taste, not only in food but opulance. The Lake Side has an awesome buffet. If you're a garden buff, visiting Minter Gardens is a must. You'll see it just off the #401 as you turn north .
Golf is close by, so bring your clubs.
I hope this blog won't attract too many people and fill up the town so when I get there it there won't be any room.
